Just log in to your paypal account, and check. These are common emails, usually saying you purchased from Amazon or Ebay. DON'T CLICK ANY LINKS IN AN EMAIL!!! Go straight to the Paypal website and check your account. If it's not there, just delete the email.

SOURCE: Carol Kelly Could you please help

lovemypet@domain.com is not the same as lovemypet.com.au.
Notice that the second one doesn't have an '@' sign, which an email address should have.

You have sent money to some the ID lovemypet@domain.com

Now, this is to try recover your money.

Go to "Resolution Center" in PayPal
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_complaint-view&nav=0.4

Click "Dispute a Transaction"

Select "Item Dispute"

Enter the Transaction ID of the payment sent. [Click "find transaction ID if you already don't know it. I hope you will recognize the amount sent from the history."]

Click "continue"

Now, follow the instructions.
You will have to write something describing the problem.
Maybe you can write "Hey, I have not received the .......... that I bought on...... . Have you already sent the item?"

Now, you have to ask the seller his PayPal ID. From where did you buy the item? I hope it is some website.

Please tell me if there is any other problem.

SOURCE: Hi I Am from INDIA. I withdrawn money on 03 oct

I am also in India and I used to do the same transaction. Please wait for upto two more days and if it's not credited to your account. You better call the Bank and clarify. I am sure that there's no paypal issue in India at the moment as recent months.

When you say, "completed on 04 oct 2010..." means the transaction was transferred to the bank from your paypal account, but if the staff haven't processed the transaction, it'll not be credited to your account. I takes at least 4 days and at most 10 days.

I hope this helps and clears your doubt.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

A gmail 75imary@gmail.com Keeps appearing on my apple post site asking for my password. This is not my account. What should I do?


I am assuming you are getting this when you are signed into Gmail.
I found these help items:Someone changed your password
If you suspect that someone else knows or has changed your password, please reset it so nobody else can sign in to your account. To do so, just enter your username on thepassword-assistance page.
Account username:
  • For Google Accounts without Gmail: the full email address you used to create your account.
  • For Google Accounts with Gmail: everything before '@gmail.com'
If you think someone has access to the email address associated with your Google Account, please change the password for your email as well. Learn more about keeping your account secure.
If you're unable to reset your Google Account password, and you can't sign in to your account, you can fill out the account recovery form.
About phishing
A phishing website or message tries to trick you into revealing personal information by appearing to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank, social network, or even Google. If you receive a suspicious message, do not provide the information requested. We've included some tips to help you recognize phishing and keep your account secure.
Think before you click
Pay close attention to sign-in screens.
Cyber criminals can use links in emails, tweets, posts and online advertisements to direct you to fake sign-in screens, where they can steal your password. Only sign in to your account when you are certain you visited the real site directly. Check the Internet address to be sure.
How can I recognize phishing?
You should always be wary of any message that asks for your personal information or messages that refer you to a web page asking for personal information. If you receive this type of message, especially from a source claiming to be Google or Gmail, please don't provide the information requested. Google will never send unsolicited messages asking for your password or personal information, or messages containing executable attachments.
Messages or websites phishing for information might ask you to enter:
  • Usernames and passwords
  • Social Security numbers
  • Bank account numbers
  • PINs (Personal Identification Numbers)
  • Full credit card numbers
  • Your mother's maiden name
  • Your birthday
What should I do when I see a phishing scam?
Most importantly, never reply to suspicious emails, tweets, or posts with your personal or financial information. Also, don't fill out forms or sign-in screens that link from these messages.
Most email providers, including Gmail, allow you to report suspicious emails and phishing scams. To report phishing in Gmail, click the drop-down arrow next to "Reply" and select "Report phishing."

Tips to avoid phishing


Phishing is one form of internet fraud wherein unscrupulous individuals extract personal information and use them for illegal transactions.

Here some sample of phishing.
In some selected trading websites, phishing is commonly done in order to swindle other members of the site. example of phishing sites area adult content websites. these sites area easy to create and they generate lots of internet traffic. this is the perfect place to get information. Former members our company (who has been banned) commit this type of offense. they are called "carders", people who use other people's information for their own benefit. to this day, there are countless number of carders in the world wide web as I know it, and this should serve as a warning to all.

Doesn't it make you wonder that a seller, who can sell items valued at less 100,000 at half the price?at close scrutiny, you will discover that person doesn't have own car, commutes to do meet ups and you can't fathom how they could afford such a luxury item. this is how carders operates and this has a lot to do with phishing they create fake websites and make it attractive to internet surfers.
Anyone who wants to buy the items displayed there will surely input their credit card details and other personal information which will then used to make fake credit cards. these fake cards will then be used to purchase merchandise from legitimate websites like Amazon.com, newegg, etc.
after 2-3 weeks after they received their items, you'll be surprised that your credit card statement will reflect purchases you did not make! this is a classic "phishing" technique.

Another form of information extraction is by establishing a fake company and asking for resumes online. We have received reports of incidents like this be careful about sharing personal information. even within the other known website "phishers" any personal information they collect will be used to open up fake credit card accounts which they determine the credit limit. these accounts will be used again to make purchases in your name without your knowledge.

Emails are also prone to phishing. phishers will create a fake Gmail or Yahoo which claims to have lost their database and needs you to re-enter your username and password. Do not fall prey to this sort of charade. the information they gather from you will be used to access your email accounts.

Tips to avoid Phishing.
1. Make sure a website is legitimate before giving away credit details and personal information.
2. Avoid submitting resumes or biodata when you doubt the legitimacy of an agency
3. If someone sends a private message asking for personal information, Do not give it unless you know the person.
4. Be careful when signing in to your email account. If you finish checking your emails, please sign out. Do not leave your account sign in, specially internet cafe shop.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Take it to a store that sells them, they will be happy to determine if it is a fake. Take the opportunity to see, feel and appreciate what a real one feels like and you will probably be able to tell in future if it is fake or not. Beware, there are some good 'fakes' out there. And remember, Only fake people wear fake watches.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
  • Take a look at the second hand. Is it ticking or is it sweeping? If it's ticking, that's your fake. A Rolex second hand sweeps around in one continuous motion. But beware, as of 2005, the good fakes have caught up to this technology.
  • Look for the small engraved crown at the 6 o'clock mark on the crystal. Most fakes will have some sort of large, obvious version of a crown, but this mark on a real Rolex is almost impossible to spot with the naked eye.
  • Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.
  • Most new Rolex models have an added model number engraved at the end of the watch end-link. This engraving includes the band model and two tiny Rolex crowns. Your good fakes will have something similar, but not all three indicators.
  • If you're being sold an authentic Rolex (in good condition and in perfect working order) for anything less than $500, become suspicious. If it's in nice shape, it doesn't really lose a lot of appreciation, and in some cases, it increases in value.

    If you had purchased this item from an auction site. I think you will need to email the administrator(s) of the site explaining to them what happened. Then they will try contacting the owner(s) of the item in question here, since he/she is operating under the Terms and Conditions of the site owner(s).
